Progressive Mathematics Initiative
  • Increase Math and Science Understanding While
    Reducing Stress

The Role of a Teacher
  • Drive student achievement
  • Design curriculum
  • Plan lessons
  • Motivate students
  • Classroom management
  • Work with others
  • Assessment Grading

5
Challenges
  • Not all teachers are curriculum developers
  • Scaffolding content
  • Aligning to the standards
  • Making it engaging
  • Articulating a scope and sequence
  • Embedding formative assessment
  • Time to develop

6
Challenges
  • Lesson Plans
  • Not based on student performance
  • Compliance focus
  • Motivating Students Classroom Management
  • Keeping students entertained, feeling successful,
    but adequately challenged
  • Keeping students engaged and on task
  • Students want to talk to each other

7
Challenges
  • Working with Others (Teachers, Administrators,
    Parents)
  • Common Planning Time
  • Common curriculum, but different scope and
    sequence
  • Administrators get lesson plans, not lessons
  • Parents and students at home dont have access to
    the lessons
  • Student collaboration

8
Challenges
  • Working with Others (Teachers, Administrators,
    Parents)
  • Common Planning Time
  • Common curriculum, but different scope and
    sequence
  • Administrators get lesson plans, not lessons
  • Parents and students at home dont have access to
    the lessons
  • Student collaboration

9
Challenges
  • Assessment Grading
  • Difficult to get daily data on each student
  • Matching the rigor or EOC tests
  • School grading schemas dont correlate to EOC
    performance
  • Who is doing the homework?

10
Progressive Science Initiative (PSI)
Progressive Mathematics Initiative (PMI)
  • PSI developed to teach HS science
  • PSI then used to create HS science teachers
  • PMI uses PSI Methods to teach K-12 math
  • PMI will be used to create K-12 math teachers

11
Progressive Science Initiative (PSI)
Progressive Mathematics Initiative (PMI)
  • Developed in 1 NJ school 1999 - present
  • Extended to 50 NJ schools 2007 present
  • Extended to Argentina 2010 - present
  • Extending to RI and CO 2011

12
Teacher Training New Jersey
  • In last two years, we created about
  • 70 new physics teachers
  • 25 new chemistry teachers
  • And trained in PSI-PMI Methods about
  • 200 currently certified math and science teachers

13
Teacher Training New Jersey
  • Those teachers taught, or are teaching
  • 10,000 students Physics
  • 500 students AP Physics B
  • 2500 students Chemistry
  • 150 students AP Chemistry
  • 4000 students mathematics

14
Teacher Training Other States
  • Rhode Island
  • Pilot started with summer 2011 training of 4
    teachers
  • Should start training new teachers, with local
    trainers, in July, 2012
  • Colorado
  • Morgridge Family Foundation supporting
    implementations with training and technology

15
Argentina
  • 2011 Results
  • Spanish translations of physics and some math
  • Created 10 trainers
  • Created 25 new physics teachers
  • Trained 75 currently certified chemistry and math
    teachers
  • 2012 Plan
  • Spanish translations of Chemistry, AP Physics B,
    and more mathematics
  • Creating 20 new trainers and training 100 new
    teachers

16
Africa
  • World Bank Mission to The Gambia in December
  • Proposal to pilot a Train the Trainers model
  • Scalable to all of The Gambia
  • Then, the African Union (600,000 schools)

17
PSI-PMI Methods
  • Curriculum
  • Pedagogy
  • Formative Assessment
  • Summative Assessment and Grading
  • Technology
  • Face-to-Face and Virtual PLCs

18
AP Performance and International Competitiveness
1995 TIMSS Results - Physics
19
AP Exams as a Goal
  • Provides a standard metric
  • Recognized by K-12, colleges universities,
    students and parents
  • Correlated to international competitiveness
  • Gives students access to top colleges
    universities, plus scholarships

Formative Assessment
Student Responders Anonymous student polling
during class to guide instruction

Formative Assessment
33
Formative Assessment
34
Summative Assessment
  • Grades based only on what students know and can
    do Tests, quizzes and labs
  • Retakes for all assessments
  • Grades are not subjective
  • Correlated to End of Course Tests
  • (APs, EOC Algebra I, Common Core, etc.)

Learning Forward National Report
The New Jersey Center for Teaching and Learning
(NJCTL) has been doing groundbreaking
professional development work in math and science
instruction as wellusing the innovative
curriculum of 2006 New Jersey Teacher of the Year
Robert Goodmanto create the Progressive Science
Initiative.

Common Core Mathematics
  • Common Core adopted by 47 states
  • Current textbooks are not aligned to Common Core
    they need to be replaced
  • But, textbooks themselves are becoming obsolete
    districts dont want to buy new ones
  • Free, highly effective, Common Core aligned
    course materials are critically important

42

PSI-PMI Paradigm Shift
  • Arthur Levine, president of the Woodrow Wilson
    National Fellowship Foundation, describes PSI-PMI
    in these words
  • There is a shift from teaching to learning, from
    working alone to collaboration, from passive to
    active learning, from analog to digital, from
    teaching a class to sharing authority for
    educating all the kids at a school, or beyond.

53
PSI-PMI Paradigm Shift
  • For what world are we preparing our students?
  • Isolated work
  • factual recall
  • sitting quietly
  • transcribing
  • accepting

54
PSI-PMI Paradigm Shift
  • For what world are we preparing our students?
  • Collaborative work
  • critical thinking
  • problem solving
  • talking
  • debating
  • questioning

55
PSI-PMI Paradigm Shift
  • Digital technology has enabled a new paradigm for
    teaching and learning
  • Theres no reason to build a new system with the
    old paradigm.
  • Build with the new paradigm

56
Reducing Stress Improving Achievement
  • Curriculum Development
  • Framework is already designed
  • Aligned to standards
  • Designed and vetted by teachers
  • Content is scaffolded
  • Embeds pedagogy, including formative assessment

57
Reducing Stress Improving Achievement
  • Lesson Planning
  • No more lesson plans share the actual lessons
    and pacing guides with administrators
  • Formative assessment dictates pace
  • If students understand- go faster, cover more
  • If students didnt understand reteach, review,
    try another problem

58
Reducing Stress Improving Achievement
  • Motivating Students Classroom Management
  • Students feel successful by teaching small chunks
  • Mastery learning eliminates high stakes testing
  • Teaching is fast paced
  • Instruction mimics student life

59
Reducing Stress Improving Achievement
  • Work with others (teachers, administrators,
    parents)
  • Teachers can share notebooks electronically
  • Curriculum articulates scope and sequence
  • Administrators get lessons not lesson plans
  • Parents and students at home have access to the
    lessons
  • Student collaboration enabled and encouraged

60
Reducing Stress Improving Achievement
  • Assessment Grading
  • Daily formative assessment
  • Matches the rigor or EOC tests
  • Grading practices correlate with EOC performance
  • No longer grading homework- students do homework
    to learn, not compliance
